Caulerpa ID help needed.

Hi All,

Does the algae in the pic look like Caulerpa lentillifera or racemosa? I'm thinking lentillifera, but I need an experts thoughts.

And if lentillifera, where can I purchase it?

Hard to say. It could be Caulerpa Racemosa Var. Cylindracea. I've seen very little caulerpa for sale lately. As the weather warms that will change.

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
